Mr. Juan O. Rodriguez
I officially started teaching at Cleveland I. S. D. serving bilingual students. It felt great helping struggling students, however, my passion was and still is in the Visual Arts and Spanish. I went on to teach in the Rio Grande Valley at W. A. Todd Ninth Grade Campus in Donna, Texas. I taught there for 3 years, I then worked for IDEA Academy Charter Schools where I taught 2 years Art and Spanish. Starting my second year at the IDEA, I realized that I was not serving my students as effectively as I would like. My wife and I decided to move to San Antonio and I applied to NEISD, an opportunity came up in the Fall of 2006. The vacancy was open for an Art/Spanish teacher to work with Dr. MaryJo McLaughlin at the Academy of Creative Education. The fit was perfect with the certifications I had. Today, I am working on my 16th year at ACE teaching Visual Arts and Spanish as a world language to sophomores, juniors, and seniors, it is a pleasure serving these students and our community.
